I just don’t even have enough words for this frosting. It is better than I could have ever imagined.
But really, Nutella + Butter + Sugar + Cream… how can you go wrong?!
I stumbled upon a version of this recipe over at My Baking Addiction, and I just knew I had to try it.
I served this on vanilla cupcakes and in a bowl to dip strawberries in… I could easily just sit and eat this by the spoonful, it’s so good!!
Simple Nutella Buttercream Frosting Recipe
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups nutella
2 pounds powdered sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2-3/4 cup heavy cream or milk
In your large mixer bowl, beat together the butter and nutella until well combined. Slowly add in the sugar and mix until combined.
Add in the vanilla & 1/4 cup of the cream, beating until well mixed. Add more cream, a bit at a time, until you reach your desired consistency. Continue to beat until light and fluffy!
This frosting can be made 2-3 days in advance! Let the frosting sit at room temperature until soft again, and if needed – re-whip until fluffy!
